Cobb has been suspended for the season due to multiple violations of team policies. A source confirms it is not a legal issue. Cobb remains enrolled at Northwestern and maintains two years of eligibility.
"There are standards that each student-athlete is expected to uphold," Northwestern head men's basketball coach Bill Carmody said in a statement. "JerShon has our complete support as he works to fulfill those expectations and we look forward to having him rejoin the program in a full capacity in the future."
Cobb was tabbed as a likely starter for the Wildcats this season, that following two injury-plagued seasons. He averaged just over seven points per game each year.
